    I couldn’t hold back on this purchase, bootsy taught me the way of playing funk on bass and after actually playing it I was blown away by how good it sounds.

    So here we have the Warwick Bootsy Collins Artist Series Space Bass

    Don’t be fooled, it says made in China, but this is the best Chinese made instrument I’ve ever played. It’s also my very first Warwick, and boy I’m late to the party. The amount of room the instrument has in terms of tone is unbelievable.

    I thought I’d start this thread as there isn’t any threads on it yet and I wanted to vouch for how serious an instrument I think this is.

    Pull the trigger, it’s out there, but it’s worth it.

    Wow. Hope it came with a case, because I suspect finding an aftermarket one would be a bitch!

    Dont poke an eye out with that
  8. That's a good bit of coin. For that price, it shouldn't matter where it's made, and some very fine instruments are coming out of China these days. Glad it's a player and lives up to the Warwick reputation. I'd rock it live, but I play in dance party bands and everyone knows I'm a hambone on stage.

    I suck, but nobody notices
    My god!

    That's essentially what I'm doing with my tele. Three of the same pickups. Except the two in the bridge are wired together.

    Plenty of excellent instruments coming from China these days - look at Dingwalls and MTDs. Rockbasses have definitely been getting much better lately as well. Chinese manufacturers are capable of making very nice things - they just cost more than most people are willing to pay for imported stuff. Dingwall moves a lot of $2500 Chinese made basses, and for good reason. I'd certainly expect similar high quality in the Space Bass.
